Brief Summary

Read full entry


Little is currently known about this species' biology. Although normally solitary, during the dry season red-necked buzzards may form small groups, which migrate to the more southerly parts of the species' range, such as Gabon (2) (4). This red-necked buzzard's usual hunting technique is to sit in wait on a perch scanning the ground, before swooping rapidly down and snatching its prey with its large, pointed talons (2).
